2022 Volvo XC60 price and specs

Volvo has fully electrified its XC60 range for 2022, with the plug-in hybrid T8 Polestar Engineered now joined by mild-hybrid B5 and B6 models.

These models pair a 48V mild-hybrid system with their turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engines.

The updated range is due in the third quarter of 2021.

Cosmetic tweaks include new bumpers front and rear, with greater differentiation between regular and R-Design and Polestar Engineered models.

The interior looks much the same as before, though there’s a new wireless charging pad positioned prominently on the centre console.

The touchscreen remains a 9.0-inch, portrait-oriented one, though it switches to the Android Automotive operating system.

That means you can receive over-the-air updates, download apps from Google Play, navigate using Google Maps, and use “Hey Google” as a voice prompt.
